At 17, Muhammad-AbdulHaqq Adeyinka Mendes embraced Islam after a life changing journey to Israel. He studied Arabic for his BA at Ohio, and major Islamic sciences in Syria, Mauritania and Nigeria.
He is the founding director of Sacred Service, an organization committed to the spiritual healing of humanity and a lived articulation of Islam rooted in the socio-cultural realities of indigenous Americans.
To teach his children, he writes qasidahs (poems, hymns) in English. Using the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, he wrote one about the Prophets. Shaykh Yahya Rhodus closed two Peace Meal events with his rendition of that particular qasidah.
